Cape Town - A 5-2 win over Golden Arrows at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Wednesday night saw SuperSport United reclaiming top spot on the league standings from Bidvest Wits.
There were early opportunities for the KZN side, but Andile Fikizolo's third minute header missed by inches before Lionel Mutizwa failed to hit the target when one-on-one with Reyad Pieterse in the eighth minute.
Matsatsantsa then had a few efforts on goal, Thabo Mnyamane sending a 14th minute shot just over the target before Aubrey Modiba sliced a 24th minute effort wide, and then Kingston Nkhatha missed with a 35th minute header.
Reneilwe Letsholonyane had two efforts on goal for the hosts as half time neared, but the former Chiefs man failed to test the opposition keeper on both occasions.
United started the second half with a bang and were ahead when Letsholonyane picked out the top corner of the net with a superb shot.
The lead was extended just a minute later when Thuso Phala blasted home from close range.
The Durban team thought they were back in the game when Kudawashe Mahachi scored in the 58th minute, only to go 3-1 behind after an own goal from Chiukepo Msowoya just three minutes later.
Cole Alexander further extended SuperSport’s lead, scoring from close range after some great combination play between Phala and Letsholonyane.
Lerato Lamola grabbed another goal for Clinton Larsen’s charges with 15 minutes to go, but there was no dampening Matsatsantsa’s evening as defender Morgan Gould got in on the party when he added a fifth goal with a header ten minutes before the final whistle.
